"Exercise shouldn't be complicated. Hop on that bike, set your resistance and have fun! There will be times when you doubt yourself and ask yourself why are you doing this, but just know that with dedication and discipline, anything is possible. Once upon a time, I weighed in at an even 245lbs. Fast forward to the present, Mad Dogg & Schwinn certified, here now ready to lead you to your goals. Let's ride!!!"
To quote a popular fitness motivator, “Fitness is like marriage. You can’t cheat on it and expect it to work.” Whether I’m leading a dance fitness class or I’m persuading an exhausted student to give me just one more push up, I put my creativity and energy into making sure every client I train enjoys a healthy, stable and long lasting relationship with fitness and wellness.

Raydene began practicing yoga as a way to challenge her body and maintain strength and flexibility. Her practice evolved into a more mindful one in her late twenties and has continued to morph into a space filled with enthusiasm and respect for what the body and breath can do together. She isn't afraid to challenge herself and also embraces quiet time for rejuvenation.
Her full-time gig is as a photo editor and photographer, but she also makes time to bring creativity into her yoga practice and feels compelled to share it with others looking for balance, improvement or maintenance for their bodies and in their lives
